Anything Goes for ODBDSLC33

The current SLC at ODBD is anything goes.  I finally decided to use Basic Grey "Indian Summer" dp and the ODBD stamp "Serenity Prayer."   I used sketch 123 from Friday Sketchers again for my layout. 

I had a hard time photographing this card and getting the colors to be "true." There's a little bit of a glare on the prayer panel, but this was the best I could do tonight.

The card is 6" square.  The base is kraft cardstock, then there is a 5 7/8" square of black cardstock.  The dp strips are cut at 1 3/8".  I sponged Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Ink on the edges of the oval while it was still in the Nestie die.  I used a labels die as I thought it would kind of look like a cross behind the prayer.  I really like the alternating light and dark areas of the dp and the gradations of color as I think it fits with the essence of the prayer.

I used a bunch of different flowers all from Michael's and some black brads in the corners.  The punched border is by MS, and I think it is called Layered Arches.

We're in the midst of a 90 day prayer challenge at my church, and I'm going to keep this card sitting out for a while as a reminder for myself.  Thanks for stopping by tonight!

I'm thrilled to add that this card was selected as one of the Shining the Light spotlight cards for this week!  Thank you!
